Life does not seem to be better for Thomas Partey away from Atlético de Madrid. At least, it is not at the moment. His signing ‘in extremis’ by Arsenal, after payment of his clause (50 million) has aroused high expectations among the gunners, that yesterday they were disappointed after the poor performance of the midfielder with his team, Ghana. So, Thomas faces his first criticisms already as gunner. “The little Arsenal player played and it was terrifying. Don’t argue with me. I watched the whole game“, remarked a follower.
Not a week ago his signing materialized when Thomas had to leave to play for Ghana the game he faced yesterday against Mali, with the balance of defeat and a barrage of criticism for the exrojiblanco for his bad play in the friendly held in Turkey.
The Sun echoes the numerous criticisms that Thomas received on Social Networks, in which he was reproached for the player not being focused on his adaptation to his new club. “Ghana is nowhere near the 2010 World Cup levels, I think Partey should move away from them and be exclusively committed to Arsenal “said another of the tweets. “The Ghana coach is poor, tactically he is not given Partey as a 10, he is a 6”, reproached another follower.
While Thomas digests the first criticisms, the midfielder must adapt against the clock to his new life at Arsenal and in London. Next Saturday Mikel Arteta’s team will travel to Manchester to face Guardiola’s Manchester City in Thomas’ first game with the London team.
